Comfy Cottage witha few quirks
Submitted: April 11, 2013
Stayed: March 2013
We loved this place, but there were a few quirks. The bottom floor was quite chillier than the rest of the house, but nothing some blankets (which were provided) couldn't fix. There were a large amount of ants in the kitchen, but if the food was off the counters, it was okay. The teas, coffees, detergents,and other touches we're wonderful. The yard was beautiful. You could hear everything in the house though, so when anyone was sleeping, you had to be very quiet. Overall, we had a nice stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind review and we are glad that you loved our cottage and the grounds, and found it to have all the extra touches you appreciated.
In that your review is the first we've had that didn't earn us all five stars, we wanted to take the time to respond to the concerns you did have. We are saddened to learn that you felt a chill on the lower floor. It's something that we could have addressed quickly if you had let us know while you were there. We suspect that perhaps you didn’t realize the lower floor is heated by baseboards with controls separate from the upper floor thermostats. In lieu of the extra blanket, a turn of a dial could have warmed you up, and there is the downstairs fireplace, if happened to be up for a fire). Also, we apologize for any discomfort that may have been caused by the visiting ants. That issue has been resolved, though unfortunately it’s something most rural homes must face each spring. Thanks for keeping food items away as you mentioned; it helps.
We hope that you will return to our cottage when the opportunity arises, and if you do and happen to encounter any issues, please call us and we will do our best to make things right for you. We live within short walking distance of the cottage literally 3 houses away and we wp;' and can usually respond right away. Your comfort is a priority for us and we are happy to quickly remedy any problems, such as the chill downstairs, etc., if you let us know of your needs.
